Kenny Dalglish has been on one this season, demanding meetings with the Head of Referees every time he doesn’t get a decision, hilariously claiming Luis Suarez doesn’t dive and he’s now complaining about Liverpool’s fixtures.
“When we ask the Football League to move our game to a later date, we’re told it’s impossible. Where’s the logic in that?” he said. “If the Football League want to devalue their own competition, that’s up to them, but they shouldn’t then be upset if people use these games to help in the development of young players. It is disgraceful in this day and age that players are being asked to play a key Premier League game and then a League Cup quarter-final in London just 48 hours later. It seems totally irresponsible as well that the quarter-finals are scheduled in the same week as Europa League games. It’s surely the duty of the football authorities to think of other solutions which consider the welfare of the players and this clearly hasn’t happened.”
